June

?

¡°Good Evening Draco.¡± Dumbledore said as he turned around to see Draco Malfoy, wand already poised, coming onto the Astronomy Tower landing.?

?

¡°Who else is here?¡± Draco replied with a question, his voice shaking. He was using all of his will power to steady his wand.

I have to do this,

he thought as he stepped closer to his headmaster.

?

¡°I believe that is a question for you.¡± Dumbledore responded.

Of course he knows what I¡¯ve done,

Draco breathed heavily, he was losing his steadiness. ¡°Draco,¡± Dumbledore responded as if he could hear Draco¡¯s thoughts, ¡°You aren¡¯t a killer Draco.¡±

?

That snapped Draco¡¯s attention back to the task. ¡°How do you know who I am? You know nothing about me. I¡¯ve done many things this year. Several things that would shock you.¡± He said, his voice still shaking. He was clenching everything so tightly. He could feel tears forming but held them off.?

?

¡°Like cursing Katie Bell, in the hopes she would bring me that necklace? Or presenting Professor Slughorn with a bottle of wine, laced with poison, hoping he would then give it to me. Forgive me Draco but those attempts are the act of someone who does not really want to kill another person. You are so intelligent Draco, I am sure you¡¯ve thought of a more skillful way to kill me.¡±

?

Harry moved so he could see the both of them clearly. He had suspected that Malfoy was a Death Eater, but a part of him never expected he would actually become a killer.

?

¡°I was chosen!¡± Draco exclaimed, and pulled up his sleeve to bear the Dark Mark.

?

¡°Draco, I once knew a young boy who made the wrong choice. Please let me help you.¡± Dumbledore said calmly, taking a step towards Draco.?

?

¡°The wrong choice? You think this is a choice!¡± Draco cried, ¡°He¡¯ll kill me. He will kill my mother, my father and me. I have to do this. I have to kill you.¡± He took his stance again with his wand pointed out.?

?

¡°Draco I can assure that your mother and father will stay safe. I want you to come and work for me Draco. The Order has agreed to help you.¡±

?

¡°What do you mean?¡± Draco asked genuinely confused, he loosened his left arm from its hardened stance.?

?

¡°Draco, the events of this evening will play out as the Dark Lord intended with one minor exception. You will not be the one to kill me.¡±

?

¡°I–.¡±

?

¡°Draco, we don¡¯t have much time. I know you invited some friends here tonight so please listen. You will play along with the events that are about to transpire. Afterwards you and your group will head to Hogsmeade. When everyone leaves to apparate, you will apparate to Sherbourne Forest. You know it well, yes?¡± Dumbledore explained in hushed, hurried tones.?

?

Draco nodded, ¡°Yes…we, my family, we used to go there. There¡¯s a hunting cabin.¡± Draco wasn¡¯t sure if he should trust Dumbledore, after all, look what had happened to Regulus, his mother¡¯s cousin. He remembered the stories his mother would tell him about both Regulus and Sirius.?

?

¡°Yes, yes, go to the hunting cabin. A member of the order will be waiting for you there and give you further instructions. If you do not go tonight, I will assume you do not wish for our help. However, should you wish to take my offer in the future, you must only look for the otter.¡±

?

¡°An otter?¡± Draco clarified,

Is this daft old man making a joke?

?

¡°Now Draco, disarm me.¡± Dumbledore stepped back and raised his wand.

?

¡°What?¡±

?

¡°Now Draco.¡±

?

“Expelliarmus.” Draco cast the spell.?

He was running as fast as he could to Hogsmeade. He didn¡¯t want to stop and watch his aunt play with anyone. He didn¡¯t want to watch the werewolf do whatever it was he was going to do. He wanted to leave Hogwarts. This place was once his favourite place to be, and now it was dark and full of death. He was panting when he finally arrived at the outskirts of the wizarding village. He came to a halting stop and looked around. He could see his breath frosting in the air. He took in a deep gulp of air and closed his eyes thinking of the hunting cabin in Sherbourne Forest.?

?

He landed on the soft forest floor just across from the hunting cabin his father used to take him to. He remembered coming here as a child, his uncles would be here too. He and his cousins would play among the tall trees, and pretend that the branches were wands. He was still shaking with the emotions of the evening as he glanced around looking for whatever it was he was supposed to find here. Then he spotted her. He jolted backwards as she began to move towards him. The woman looked like his deranged aunt Bella.

?

¡°Draco?¡± She called out. She knew his name.

How?

He wondered, he nodded timidly at her. She walked closer and he stepped back again only to find himself against a tree. He held out his wand, gripping it tightly.?

?

¡°Draco, dear, I am not going to hurt you. Dumbledore sent me.¡± She said and stood in one place. He nodded again, lowering his wand a bit. She was from The Order he realized. ¡°I¡¯m your aunt Draco, Andromeda.¡±

?

Draco stepped forward and his aunt opened her arms. He stepped into them and collapsed against her. She caught him and held him tightly as he shook with sobs. ¡°Oh my dear boy. Shhh, It¡¯s okay Draco.¡±

?

¡°Please,¡± he sobbed, ¡°please don¡¯t let him hurt her.¡±

?

¡°Who Draco?¡± Andromeda asked, stroking the back of his head as though he was her own son.

?

¡°My mother.¡± Draco pulled back and looked at his aunt, his face wet with tears. ¡°Please,¡± he begged, ¡°I¡¯ll do anything, just don¡¯t let him hurt her.¡±

?

¡°I will keep her safe Draco, I give you my word.¡± Andromeda replied and he nodded. Draco stepped back and wiped his face and straightened his clothes. He had never shown this much vulnerability or affection to anyone other than his own mother. His aunt gripped his hand, ¡°Now listen carefully Draco.¡± She began.?

August

Draco quickly sent the message off to Blaise and the others. He stood up from his desk and pocketed his wand. He took a deep breath.

Only a few more days, and then it will be over.

He thought as he glanced in the mirror. The Order was coming to the manor. They were going to be saved. That was the plan. When he returned from his mission with his uncle he would meet with his mother and tell her everything. He would prepare her and let her know that he had taken care of everything, that he found a way to get them out.?

?

¡°You ready boy?¡± His uncle, Rodolphus, stepped into his room. Draco frowned at him, useless man, he thought. The Dark Lord sent him on ridiculous missions to terrorize random muggle towns. This time he asked Draco to go with him. Apparently his uncle wasn¡¯t doing something correctly. Draco followed his uncle out of the room and down the hallway.?

?

He knelt down when he reached the Dark Lord. ¡°Draco, you have been such a good warrior in our cause. I want you to assist your uncle on this mission and ensure he completes it successfully.¡± Voldemort hissed as he laid a hand upon Draco¡¯s shoulder. Draco tried not to shudder.?

?

¡°Yes my lord.¡± Draco murmured and stood up to go and kiss his mother goodbye.?

?

¡°Rodolphus, do try and follow orders this time. I will not be as kind as I have in the past should you fail yet again.¡± Voldemort chided his soldier. Rodolphus nodded and glanced at his wife who was scowling at him.

?

Rodolphus and Draco both walked towards the front entrance of the manor. Once outside the gates they apparated to a forest. ¡°Follow me.¡± Rodolphus said and Draco took his wand out, following behind his uncle.?

September?

?

A bright light lit up the sky, Draco and Rodolphus looked at each other before hastening their way towards it. A flash of something goes by Draco and he ducks behind a tree. Looking around he sees a ball of blue light. He has never cast one, but he recognizes it as a patronus. It bounces closer and reveals itself to be an otter.

Look for an otter

. Dumbledore¡¯s voice comes back to him. He shakes his head and it¡¯s gone.?

?

¡°Dementors.¡± He hears his uncle say and he turns towards him. ¡°There were dementors over the muggle town.¡±

?

¡°Do you think Potter is there?¡± Draco asked, following his uncle again. His uncle shrugs.

Right,

Draco remembers,

I¡¯m here to be the smart one.

He rolls his eyes and continues walking through the forest.?

October

?

¡°We¡¯re supposed to be back by now.¡± Draco grumbles to his uncle who keeps leading them further and further into the forest. ¡°There are no muggles out here, the sun is setting.¡± They were on yet another mission somewhere in England, a few days after the encounter with the dementors.

And the otter

, Draco remembered.

?

His uncle suddenly stops and whirls around, the tip of his wand inches from Draco¡¯s face.

?

¡°What the bloody hell are you doing?¡± Draco exclaims, backing up.

?

¡°Getting rid of you.¡± His uncle snarls.

?

Draco raises his wand, ¡°Put your wand down Rodolphus.¡± Draco spoke in a low tone.

?

¡°Is itty baby Draco going to go and cry to his mummy?¡± His uncle teased, laughing in a menacing way. ¡°I know all about your secret my boy.¡±

?

Draco scoffed, ¡°That I prefer scones over crumpets for my afternoon tea. Wow, yes, you finally dragged it out of me.¡± He rolled his eyes.

?

¡°Shut up you disloyal little leach.¡± His uncle shouted, ¡°You think I am some stupid old man don¡¯t you. That I don¡¯t know what everyone says about me, or that my wife is shagging someone else.¡± His uncle jutted out his wand towards Draco¡¯s face again, ¡°or that you have been communicating with The Order. I know that you sent your little friends at Hogwarts a message this morning about this mission.¡± His uncle reached into his pocket and pulled out the paper that Draco had written the message on.

?

¡°You don¡¯t know what you¡¯re talking about.¡± Draco sneered, gripping his wand.?

?

¡°Expelliarmus.¡± Rodolphus called out and caught Draco¡¯s wand. ¡°I hope you said a nice goodbye to mummy Draco.¡± his uncle finished before casting another spell.

?

Draco fell down, screaming out in pain as he clutched his stomach. He tried to occlude but his world was becoming darker. The last thing he saw was the flash of an otter.
